Libertarians Try to Come to University of Richmond

A political science major at Virginia’s University of Richmond is trying to bring a new perspective to the university’s political organizations, with Students for Liberty, a libertarian group. The organization has over a hundred twenty-five chapters across all fifty states, and promotes the libertarian philosophy of social and economic freedom.

But there is a problem. Danielle Lewis, a senior who has been involved with the Libertarian Party for nine years, has yet to get the group recognized on campus. Students for Liberty has attracted a few students, including some who are studying abroad, but not enough to reach the university’s membership requirement.

    With 4,300 enrollment, one would hope at least ten students would be interested in liberty.

    Good luck to SFL. If you czn’t get a regular meeting room, try commandeering a table in the back of a dining hall at a quiet time. Having an Operation Political Homeless booth at a campus fair or something will attract lots of attention, too.

    lol, it’s super easy to get students to sign to allow a club to get recognized whether they actually agree or join or not – just like getting a candidate or party on the ballot.
